Friends of Fondren Library Luncheon
The Rice University Friends of Fondren Library Luncheon was hosted at the Bulgari store in the Galleria Mall. Friends of Fondren Gala being held Friday, March 27, 2015 at River Oaks Country Club will be honoring Rice University President David W. Leebron and Ms. Y. Ping Sun at their 35th Annual Friends of Fondren Library Gala.
Bulgari went into their archives in Rome, requested by Stephanie Von Stein Director Bulgari Houston and sent a photo of an owl pin they have made in the past. “The pin was replicated and placed on top of each dessert as a surprise. Everyone loved it,” she informed. (The pin can be special ordered and price is upon request). Houston is known for its forward thinking and philanthropy and that’s exactly what Bulgari stands for. Houston celebrated Bulgari 130 Years of Masterpieces last year. It is a luxury brand that is associated with timeless elegance.
